THEATRE FOR A BOLD AUDIENCE

“This year ACT Theatre rises to the occasion of our increasingly polarized society by producing works that explore the space between extreme ideologies. Thrilling plays that reach for common ground and inspire us to challenge our own assumptions. Our audience craves the beautifully told story that will start profound conversations. This is theatre for a bold audience.” – John Langs, Artistic Director

Ride the Cyclone
Book, Music & Lyrics by Brooke Maxwell & Jacob Richmond
March 10 – May 20, 2018

A co-production with The 5th Avenue Theatre & presented at ACT
Directed & Choreographed by Rachel Rockwell

Part comedy, part tragedy and completely unexpected, this wonderfully weird musical is at every turn satirical, macabre, creepy, campy, and hilarious.


The Wolves
By Sarah DeLappe
April 20 - May 13, 2018
Directed by Sheila Daniels

Big questions are asked and tiny battles are waged with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. “…a delightful meditation on society, sex, and soccer...DeLappe's dialogue is hilarious and idiosyncratic, moving swiftly from gross-out humor to pain. Ninety minutes in a smart, sympathetic, female world,” The Village Voice.

June 8 - July 8, 2018
Directed by Neel Keller

This one-act, one-woman drama surrounds eight composite characters from the St. Louis region, examining the issues of race and social unrest from a variety of perspectives.

By Lauren Weedman

Skylight
By David Hare
September 7 - September 30, 2018
Directed by John Langs

A man and woman reunite after several years apart. Is the gap between them unbridgeable, or can they resurrect their relationship? An intensely clear-sighted, complex, and thought-provoking drama about power, politics, and a love affair.


OSLO
By J.T. Rogers
October 12 - November 11, 2018
Directed by John Langs

2017 TONY AWARD WINNING BEST PLAY. OSLO tells the true—albeit little known—story of Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul and her husband, Terje Rød-Larsen, who together coordinated top-secret peace negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat in the early 1990s. Their efforts culminated in the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993. A deeply personal story set against the background of a high stakes political thriller about the individuals behind world history and their all-too-human ambitions.
